Thomas Inman
Thomas Inman was a house-surgeon to the Liverpool Royal Infirmary. In his lifetime he had numerous medical papers published. Perhaps most notably, however, he was an amateur mythologist, and as such had several non-medical papers published, including Ancient Pagan and Modern Christian Symbolism, first published in 1869 and then again in 1875.

In Ancient Pagan and Modern Christian Symbolism, doctor Inman elucidates the origins of some popularly-used symbols, some of them medical. Many of the symbols he discusses are recognizable even today.
